Milestones

500 followers.jpg

I hit a milestone this morning. My little blog hit 500 Followers. That’s incredible, and a bit mind blowing to be honest.

I am so grateful to all you lovely people for reading my flash fiction and looking at my photos.

I read every comment and appreciate every like and both your comments and your critiques are always motivating.

A special shout out to all my weekly flash fiction challenges. Friday Fictioneers, Sunday Photo Fiction, What Pegman Saw, Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers, Flash Fiction for the Purposeful Practitioner. I really enjoyed The Literary Lion which weighed in at 500 words but alas it is no longer on the agenda.

My thanks also to the two Photo Challenges I regularly participate in, The Daily Post Photo Challenge and of course the  One Word Photo Challenge.

I must also mention the wonderful 500 word for 30 days challenge where I wrote a lot more than 500 words a day and over 15K words that month. It was a blast and made me realise what I was really capable of.

I have two short stories in preparation and a book in the making. I’m transitioning from being a writer to becoming an author which is an exciting prospect indeed.

This is also a double milestone because this post is also my 500th post on the blog. One post then for each follower.

Thanks again guys!

 

Two Six Word Stories

Two six word stories today that just popped up unexpectedly.

The first was inspired by a FB post by Cyndi Komula who cited a lovely text by Langston Hughes ‘Let the rain kiss you. Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops. Let the rain sing you a lullaby’ :

Warm summer. Rain kisses. Earths lullaby.

The second is a co-written six word story that arrived through an exchange of comments with Laura Gabrielle Feasey on my recent story : The Deep End.

Parents rash decision. Long lasting effects.
